Classic Games in the Making: Old-School RPGs Are New Again

In the early days of computer RPGs, all it took was you and your PC to enjoy a good story and the thrill of success. Today, you may want to experience new games in the old style--and that's what we're talking about here, to varying degrees of "new" and "old." The games in this unranked list mix old-school gameplay with new styles and ideas. We tossed in one classic for reference. All are single-player and turn-based; no 20-man raids or button-mashing required.
